Workers of the Unite Union have scheduled a second strike at Felixstowe, the largest container port in the UK, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “This strike is the result of a pay dispute between the port operator and the Unite Union that has not been resolved yet. The strike at Felixstowe will be held in tandem with another planned strike at Liverpool.

“The new 8-day strike at Felixstowe is scheduled to start at 7:00 AM on September 27th and end at 6:59 AM on October 5th. The strike at Liverpool will run from September 19th to October 3rd.

“The port of Felixstowe is operated by the UK arm of CK Hutchison. The port operator stated that the process of mediation has come to an impasse as there seems to be no prospect of an agreement being reached with the Union. CK Hutchison is offering backdated pay from January 1st, 2022, with a pay raise of 7%, which the union has rejected.”
